We could not pass up the opportunity to offer our SECC supporters a chance to win a 10 day stay at the Penney Cottage in beautiful Heytesbury, Wiltshire, England.

This auction item did not hit the minimum bid at our Family Feud event so we have decided to open the cottage up in a raffle to local families and friends  of SECC.

Dates available for 2018 & 2019

Cottage is not available for the following dates in 2018:

June 1 – 10, 2018 / July 5-15, 2018 / September 23 – 30, 2018 / October1-2, 2018


“My family and also extended family visited for two weeks in 2000. We liked it so much we returned in 2006 in a combined trip to London for a few more days in the country.  Penney Cottage sleeps six very comfortably with plenty of room. Enough parking for two cars.   An easy drive from the airports or from London. Heytesbury is a small village just out side of Warminster in SW England. Shopping is good in Warminster. Excellent train service to Westbury 

Just a few miles from Stonehenge a World Heritage site and close by are wonderful attractions:  Bath, Salisbury Cathedral, Village of Castle Comb, the Cotswolds, pubs and Inns or hook up with National Trust if you are interested in old estates, gardens and tours”  – David Graham
